Vanderburgh County Jail

A new development in a case that involves arson, explosives, an alleged faked mental evaluation  and a possible suicide attempt to avoid testifying.

Tuesday afternoon, 83-year-old Albert Fink was booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail on charges of theft and obstruction of justice.  He is being held on $5,000 cash bond.  A warrant was issued last week for Fink’s  arrest, but he spent several days recuperating in a hospital recovering from injuries he sustained in a car accident.

Arson suspect arrested

Jan 14, 2015

Police have arrested an Evansville woman accused of starting a house fire that displaced three families.

48-year-old Tracy Felker is being held on a preliminary charge of arson, following Monday’s fire at a multi-unit house at 311 E. Columbia St.

No one was injured in the blaze, which also damaged the siding of a house next door.

Landlord David Windau told the Courier and Press that he went to the building earlier on Monday to repair a window, and Felker threw a television at him. Windau told police that Felker also threatened to burn the house down.
